When you sell a vehicle in New Jersey, you will need to comply with all the Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) title transfer requirements in order for the transaction to be valid.
A bill of sale is usually used in cases where the Certificate of Ownership (the title) is unavailable when the sale takes place. This form may also serve as additional proof that a genuine transaction has occured. Both the buyer and the seller should complete the bill of sale as required.
Keep the following in mind:
- If you are the new owner of a vehicle, whether it is new or previously owned, and you set out to register it, you will need to prove to the MVC that you bought it, and from whom.
- In a case when no current title is available, or when you purchase the vehicle from someone other than the last registered owner, a bill of sale may serve as the proof that you purchased the car.
